My cat has bald patches on her ears, why?

My Cats Bald Ears
Last year my then 3 year old cream burmese female developed small patches on the end of each ear. it appeared that the hair had just been removed in some way. No scratching was involved and the vet seems to have no answer. The cat isn't bothered. Should I be?Doesn't look great but I don't show her. Her twin brother does not have the problem so it is obviously not contagious. Any ideas?
well this is odd, if the vet has taken a look and does not believe it to be caused by ear mites or another parasite, then all it can be is either some odd skin allergy or a simply genetic fault.
It is very symmetrical and so i am wondering if it is genetic.
If it is not bothering her in any way and their is no scratching then i wouldn't worry. If it starts to spread then the vet will have to do more tests.
best wishes kate
